My name is Ed and I had a Medtronic pacemaker implanted 3 weeks ago. I just turned 62 and had otherwise been healthy. I had a stent put in during January and on my first day of Cardiac rehab I had fainted and then had a pacemaker put in! Fun times.
I am coming up on my first check on the device with cardiologist. Hope it goes well. I am still adjusting to my new friend. I have found a lot of comfort in reading the posts in the various forums. Much of what I feel, both physically and emotionally a lot of people have and are going through. That has eased my stress very much. Thank you everyone for being here.
You know you're wired when...
You always have something close to your heart.
Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
